The Great Northeast Athletic Conference is excited to announce that Albertus Magnus College junior women's soccer student-athlete Megan Doyle will join the office staff as its Marketing & Multimedia Specialist Intern.
A native of Central Islip, N.Y., the Visual Communications major will specialize in communications, social media campaigns, graphic design, and video editing in her part-time role with the GNAC.
Doyle's hiring was made possible through the NCAA Division III Diversity Funding for conference offices, as approved by the D3 Strategic Planning and Finance Committee (SPFC).
As part of her new GNAC duties, Doyle will also serve as a key cog in the GNAC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) Commissioner's Council discussions, helping deliver the conference's SAAC messaging amidst the COVID-19 pandemic to the rest of the league's 3,000+ student-athletes.
A defender for head coach Nicholas Wajnowski's Falcons program in New Haven, Conn., Doyle appeared in 16 games (six starts) last fall after being named All-League three times at Central Islip High School.
On campus at Albertus Magnus, Doyle works as an intern in the Marketing and Communications office, reporting to the Digital Media Specialist and the Director of Creative Services and Marketing. There, she is responsible for assisting in the final video production of campus message resources, reporting on community events, editing the Albertus YouTube channel, and most recently, the launching of a campus-life video series.
This past summer, Doyle also served as an intern for Ahead of the Pace in Farmingdale, N.Y., researching events for clients while keeping up with COVID-19 policy changes. She too has been a producer at Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, communicating with the cast and director regarding scheduling, budget, design, equipment and location.
The NCAA Division III office's giveback to the D3 membership and conferences offices comes in many gracious forms that the GNAC is grateful for. In addition to the GNAC receiving this undergrad grant each of the last five years, Barroso's appointment this past summer marked the fifth time under Commissioner Joe Walsh that the GNAC has received the two-year D3 Ethnic Minority and Women's Internship Grant.
